The EGGER Group continues its growth course and takes over the plant in Markt Bibart (DE). The purchase agreement was signed on 8 September 2023.

With the purchase of the Rauch chipboard plant in Markt Bibart, Germany, the EGGER Group is consistently pursuing its strategy of growth based on its own performance and is able to further strengthen its position in its home market Europe.

Good news: EGGER continues to grow and acquires Rauch chipboard plant in Markt Bibart (DE).

Family company with history

The chipboard plant in Markt Bibart, near W├╝rzburg, has so far belonged to the Rauch Group, a family company with a long tradition. The company has been manufacturing and selling high-quality wardrobe and bedroom ranges for over 125 years. In 1958, Rauch took over the chipboard plant and from then on was able to produce its own chipboard for furniture manufacturing. The chipboard plant now supplies not only Rauch furniture plants but also other national and international furniture and door customers. After the sale of the chipboard plant, the Rauch Group will focus fully on the further development of its furniture plants in order to further expand its strong market position.

EGGER Group continues to grow

Subject to approval by the cartel law authorities, the chipboard plant in Markt Bibart will be the 22nd production plant of the globally active EGGER Group. Rauch Group's furniture plants remain unaffected by the takeover.

"Sustainable growth based on our own performance is our declared objective. We are successfully continuing our strategy with this additional location in our core market Germany. The many years of expertise of the staff in Markt Bibart, together with the synergy effects resulting from our Group presence, enable great growth potential for the location," emphasises Thomas Leissing, EGGER Chief Financial Officer and Speaker of the Group Management.

EGGER relies on the experience of the 195 employees on site and is very happy to welcome them to the global company family.
